What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Fabulous Patios
Kapow! This long, L-shaped orange planter wall defines the patio and gives it all kinds of personality. It also grabs the eye, so that you forget you are in what otherwise could be a boring airshaft-like space.
1) Use orange as a large accent. Here the planter wall enlivens the gray alleyway space.
Frank Organ added this to Orange in the Garden: Do You Dare?
Orange is reported to be a great color to use where people congregate, as it is thought to be warm and welcoming, even improving social behavior.So perhaps that is why the designer chose it to be the dominant color in this otherwise subdued gray seating area. The orange doesn’t overpower the planting; as with the water feature in a previous image, the blue-gray of the concrete empowers the warmth of the orange.

Complementary Colors The relationship of complementary colors are perceived as completing or enhancing each other. However, when complementary colors are chosen based on definition by light mixture, they are not the same of the artists' primary colors.
